485th Bombardment Group

The reunion scheduled for September 10-13, 2020 has been postponed until September 9-12, 2021. We are sorry we had to do this, but we felt the coronavirus pandemic is too much of a risk considering the age of our veterans. Please adjust your schedule and make plans to join us in Albuquerque next year. The hotel and tours remain the same – only the dates are changed. Dave Blake will be contacting those who have already registered for this year about their registration. If you have made a hotel reservation, you might want to give the hotel a call to make sure you are not charged come September this year.
